Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

The main goal of the course is to enable students to know and understand electron devices and circuits for acquisition and advanced processing of electrical signals from sensors of physical quantities. 

A particular care will be devoted to analyse and undestand the specifications of each device or circuit so be able to select the components for the design of a specific electronic system with the aim

to maintain the information at the best by maximizing the signal to noise ration and minimizing the effects of electromagnetic interferences and disturbances.

The theoretical study of a topic will be followed by its practical implementation within a specific application.
